With the Green Bay Packers taking Super Bowl XLV 31-25 over the Pittsburgh Steelers, we’re now left with collecting in on bets, complaining about the sleepy first half and the over-produced Half-Time show (with a heavily auto-tuned Black Eyed Peas) and, of course, talking about our favorite commercials of the night.

There were the usual car (I guess the auto industry is doing better) and soft drink commercials, but there were also some surprises from newcomers like Living Social and Groupon.

Here are some highlights:
